Africa

View Product | ISBN: 9781682654088 | $9.95 | Paperback

The history of Africa is one of two major parts: the time before European arrival . . . and the time after. The millennia before European nations came to Africa is packed with creativity, culture, and change. After the 1500s, when Europeans began to arrive in place after place, the history of Africa became centered around the clash of those cultures. This book fills readers in on the deep and rich history of native peoples and ancient lands, and then shows how Africa has responded—positively and negatively—to the changes thrust upon it. It’s a story that is still adding new chapters every year . . . but this is how it all started.

Change has been constant in India over the millennia, but some things have remained the same throughout that time. Early India was a collection of smaller kingdoms across its vast landscape. The effects of Hinduism began then and were deep and lasting, continuing to the present day. The impact of Islam had a large effect on India, overshadowed only by the long colonization by Great Britain. All these events, touching the lives of the great and the small alike, created a rich, varied, and active culture that is today one of the world’s largest. Take a journey through the amazing history of one of the most ancient and important places in the world.

In this volume, travel back in time to meet the people who created that foundational culture, and see how their ways and beliefs were tested as the “modern” world took hold . . . and then see how Japan took its proud place among the leading nations of the world today.
